ALIVIO FC Spinning

Shimano’s reputation for producing inexpensive yet high quality spin reels that would normally have features reserved for a much higher price point is something the brand prides itself on and the popular Alivio FC reel range further demonstrates their ability to produce a high quality product for a very reasonable price.

The Alivio FC comes in two sizes (2500, 4000), which means it will be suitable for targeting multiple species and fishing locations.

Each model features one shielded A RB bearing plus one roller bearing, an AR-C spool to assist longer casting and Varispeed for an even line distribution on the spool.

This is a very affordable range of spinning reels that are extremely reliable and will offer years of fun for the most frequent of fisherman.

As par for the course with Shimano reels, the Alivio FC range comes with a comprehensive Shimano New Zealand 10 year warranty for peace of mind fishing.

Super Stopper II anti-reverse uses a one-way bearing that eliminates backplay.This provides the angler with instant hooksetting power. In some reels, the Super Stopper II can be turned off to allow backreeling for special techniques and situations.
Through tens of thousands of casting tests and computer simulations it has been determined that this new AR-C spool lip design provides longer casting distances than a standard spool lip design while preventing backlashes and wind knots from forming. It also allows the line to flow off the spool in smaller loops during the cast, which means less slap on the stripper guide. This means longer casts ...
This feature eliminates wobble during the retrieve by counter balancing the rotor to enhance sensitivity and smoothness. By using computer balancing, an approach similar to car tire balancing, we are able to redistribute the rotor weight to create smooth rotation and eliminate vibrations caused by the reel.
Normal oscillation systems use a constant rotation of the oscillation gear that, when translated to the cam, provides an inconsistent spool speed. This results in line lay that stacks at either end of the spool. By using an oval oscillation gear, we are able to alter the speed of the oscillation cam to provide a consistent spool speed. This results in an even line lay that provides excellent casta...

Shimano New Zealand provides a TEN YEAR WARRANTY on all Shimano fishing reels, against defects in materials and/or faulty workmanship.
